Fort St Jean Baptiste staff will discuss the care of the French Marine’s clothing. Participants in this program will learn the difference between 18th century soft soap and bar soap. Where colonial people washed their clothes and how? Program participants will use a yoke and buckets to collect water to do laundry. They will use a bar of soap and rub board to wash a cloth in a wooden tub, and then ring and hang dry.
